[Noisebridge-discuss] looking for a ZIF socket programmer for atmega328p atmel chips

I program 100 to 500 AVR chips (of various flavors) at a setting for my kits.  All DIP.  I only use a regular DIP socket and a USBtinyISP.  I bend the legs while one is already programming.  I insert the chip only halfway into the DIP socket.  I think this is actually easier than using a ZIF socket -- no need to push and pull that little handle.
